Solo Dances Submission
ALDC Management Committee is in the process
of choosing the dances to be performed at the Solo section of the Australian
Line Dance Competition (ALDC).
We are endeavouring to pick dances that
- Currently being danced
- Choreographed well
- A pleasure to perform
- Entertaining to spectators.
We invite you to participate in this
process by supplying us with as many of the names of dances as you
like in each section listed below.
Solo Dances Selection
As a guild, where possible the chosen dances should have one
or more of these elements:-
dances should be appropriate for age category, not contain obscene
or inappropriate lyrics,
dances should be phrased to the music and be danced to the music chosen
by the dance choreographer.
dances should NOT exceed 4 minutes 30 seconds.
selected dance should have a minimum of four full repetitions (vanillas)
should contain an adequate number of step patterns to allow entrants
to perform at the highest possible standard
chosen for Solo freestyle sections where variations are scored after
the second vanilla should have sufficient variety in the original
step patterns to allow a wide range of adaptions.
selected dance should have a minimum of 32 counts and a maximum of
dances for any given section should vary in style and tempo eg. a
slow 66 count waltz and a medium/fast paced 48 count ChaCha as opposed
to two slow pace dances , or two fast pace dances.
far as possible, whilst selecting dances that will be popular with
the competitors who dance them, avoid choreography that has excessive
restarts, tags or breaks.
well formatted, easy to understand, unambiguous, step description
choreography sheets should be available for each selected dance and
the sheet should stipulate who the choreographer is, what the music
is, and where the dance starts.
that are currently danced across Australia and are reasonably well
known (not just in one area or state) should be given first consideration.
